#4 - Airplanes

I barely fit into airplane seats. I have to have the window seat and lean over the entire flight to avoid encroaching on my neighbors space. The last time I took a flight at this weight the seat-belt didn't fit. I pretended to latch it, but instead just hid the belt under my stomach. How embarrassing!

Yesterday was so great. I stayed on plan, was going to stay in my points range, eventhough I went out for dinner with friends. But then it happened. In my picture perfect day, I was eating my sushi at dinner, which I had allotted for, and my friends insisted we go to Cold Stone Creamery afterwards. Yug! How could I resist? I thought, 'oh, I'll just go and not get anything'. Not! Of course, I ended up caving in and getting some ice cream. I tried to keep it reasonable, so I got the smallest size. I felt pretty satisfied with myself, a little guilty, but not too bad. We'll see how it all plays out at weigh-in this morning!

Oooh...Cold Stone is plain evil when it comes to points. But I know you still rocked at weigh-in! Keep up the good work this week :)

I've done quite a bit of flying in the last few years and it's amazing to me how something as simple as a seat belt can make you feel so ashamed. Some planes I've been on I've fit with room to spare and some I need 3 or 4 inches. I too have faked being buckled and hidden my lap with a blanket out of embarrasment but once I relaxed and stop tensing myself up I've always been able to get it buckled. I actually had a stewardess hand me the extention before and I must have been 20 shades of red and couldn't look up because I was affraid of who saw and what they would think! Never again!
